is not headquartered in the united states. they don't have to abide by u.s. labor laws. they don't have to abide by u.s. minimum wage. they have limited liabilities when it comes to their crew. they're going to give vacation early to crew near the end of their contract, and for those in the middle they're going to assign them to their ships. two things they didn't have to do. i'm wobderring whether you think they did a good job. >> i'll tell you my big problem with that, that was the vice president. where's the ceo. when you're disaster control, and this is something that's affected a lot of people. why is the head guy not there saying i'm in control, so to put the vice president of marketing out there, that's not the way i would tell people to do it. cl eo should be on the ground. i think they missed a very big opportunity there. >> yeah, i know -- jerry cahill, we've been waiting for him -- on the ground, we were hopeful he would be at this press conference, we haven't seen him. i can tell you, he's here. i know you have a great panel with you, right? >> yeah, erin, i'm here, we have a great panel he
world war ii veterans in the u.s. senate. what's that mean for our politics and our national perspective? >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, february 15th, it's t"the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. president obama is standing by his embattled nominee for secretary of defense, chuck hagel, as hagel's former senate republican colleagues put up a major roadblock yesterday in their attempts to not just delay the nomination, but try to kill it. >> the yeas are 58, the nays are 40. one senator announced present. >> and with that senate vote, chuck hagel came up short of a 60-vote filibuster roadblock that senate republicans demanded, delaying what could still be hagel's eventual confirmation vote by at least two weeks. four republicans, mississippi's thad cochran, susan collins, mike johannes, and lisa murkowski voted. president obama was emphatic during a google plus question and answer session. >> my expectation and hope is that chuck hagel, who richly deserves to get a vote on the floor of the senate, will be confirmed as our defense secretary. it's just unfortunate that this k
this document to be filed in the u.s. attorney in washington d.c. and it has to do with the allegation over misuse of campaign funds. the investigation also takes in his wife sandy in chicago who served as his campaign manager. >> lynn sweet, thank you very much. much more coming up. also, we'll hear from the president in chicago. i'm brooke baldwin. listen to jim acosta in for wolf in washington. hey, jim. >>> thanks, brooke. happening now, look up in the sky. a fireball and a shocking reminder that planet earth is spinning around in a very unpredictable neighborhood. back on dry land and already heading to court, we have details of the first lawsuit filed by a passenger who says the cruise line's negligence turned their vacation into a nightmare. >>> and the "blade runner" goes to court and cries uncontrollably. wolf blitzer is off today. i'm jim acosta. you're in the situation room. we are starting in chicago where right now president obama's about to take the stage to talk about two of the top priorities from his state of the union speech, jobs and guns. we expect him to connect the nee
as a community organizer. he would become a state legislator and u.s. senator. the connection is great. he still has a home here. the 15-year-old hadiya pendleton was killed a mile from where his job is. the connection is very real for him. the gun violence rate is one of the highest in the country. the poverty rate in the south side of chicago where he will be speaking today, where he was once a community organizer, one of the highest in the country. we've been here a couple of days, talking to community organizers. they say the need has never been greater. so when the president comes here, politically the main thing is to give his message from the state of the union and put it on the ground where the people are and where the situations require it and, of course, south side of chicago is a place where urban violence is very much a foot. however, there's going to be the looming question, are you just giving your speech or are you going to make good on the promises here where you call home? a lot of people are so happy to see the president but they will be even more happy if these words turn into
on the u.s. embassy in benghazi, libya last september. the vote to move forward with hage;s nomination fell just short of the needed 60 votes to break a filibuster and head to an actual vote. president obama use the social media site google + hangout to express his frustration. >> >> senate majority whip burkdick durbim office says the senate will take up another vote to move forward on hagel confirmation on tuesday, february 26th. senator john mccain says expect him to be confirmed. >> the federal aviation minister is and is looking for sites to test fly drones. the plan to create six drone test sites around the country. the goal is to allow widespread use of unmanned aircraft by 2015, but the faa is well behind on that deadline. not everyone is in favor of increasing the number of drones in the sky. privacy advocates worry that the widespread drone usually to subsurveillance society in which the public is constantly monitored. >> we will soon know more about what happened in a sealed hearing concerning this chandra levy murder case. she was the washington internal gained national attentio
, terrorists attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> we will continue pushing and asking questions about benghazi, not because it's personal, not because we're republicans and he's a democrat, but because america needs to learn what happened and we need to learn from our mistakes. >> this, despite testimony on benghazi from general petraeus, hillary clinton, admiral mike mullen, leon panetta, martin dempsey, but it's not enough. republicans want to know what happened as the attack in benghazi went down and who changed those talking points. they want more answers from the president. so dana, is chuck, is the blockage of chuck hagel's confirmation because of benghazi, as lindsey graham illustrates or is it because of something else? >> reporter: it is mostly because of chuck hagel. benghazi was, they sort of have been on a crusade to get more answers for benghazi and like you see many, many times here in the senate, they saw chuck hagel and his nomination as a way to use that as leverage to get answers and they did, they got an answer about what the president's role was on that day.

across the u.s. >> sam, thank you. >>> we're going to turn to the carnival cruise ship nightmare. it is finally over. after five days drifting without power in the gulf of mexico, "the triumph" docked in mobile, alabama, overnight, with over 4,000 passengers onboard. we're going to talk to several of them live in a moment. first, let's go to abc's matt gutman. matt, i can only imagine relief when the huge ship behind you hit land. >> reporter: good morning, george. being so close to "the triumph," you get a sense of the scale involved here and the difficulty in towing this city, floating on the sea, 350 miles in the gulf of mexico. but this morning, it's about the end of the ordeal. and the people getting off the ship. those that cheered, who unfurled a banner that read, sweet home alabama. overnight, the sweet taste of terra firma. >> great to be back in america and on land. >> reporter: just before midnight, more than 3,000 passengers stranded for 8 days at sea, began spilling out of the ship. some angry. >> it was degrading. demoralizing. they want to insult us by giving us $5
in the u.s. military and if any are watching tonight, if i were you i'd say you deserve a vote. you know, he would be the first enlisted man ever to head the pentagon. i think enlisted personnel deserve some representation. and that the grunt's view at the pentagon is a real recommendation for chuck hagel. it would be interesting to start to hear from that community about how they feel about his being filibustered. >> michelle, your thoughts on this. i mean, isn't this harry reid's fault? harry had a chance to change the rules of the senate and he was too nice to mitch mcconnell and now look what we've got. there's probably more to come. your thoughts. >> i suppose so, though i remember not very long ago when we were all suffering under the george w. bush administration and there was a real fear that without the filibuster then george bush would have been able to put some of his very radical extremists on the bench and push through more of his agenda. so i understand the reticence to kind of unleash the nuclear option. and you know, i don't think you can necessarily blame harry reid for
realtytraccing is claiming that a month old homeowner bill of rights is "profoundly altering the u.s. foreclosure landscape." while california has taken steps to safeguard homeowners that may have already started bearing frurkts the wide-reaching claim of the new national landscape can't be true because there isn't enough data to back it up. at the height of the housing crisis, california suffered like everybody else. dragging down the national foreclosure rate with record activity. but now that thing are turning around, according to the group relate till trak, foreclosures national little have dipped 28% in just the last year. california is receiving a lot of the credit. but is it deserving? >> we do believe that part of the dramatic nature of the drop in california is due to the homeowners bill of rights that took effect in january. >> wait a minute. a series of consumer protections signed by jerry brown last summer that became enforceable six weeks ago are turning things around for the rest of the country? this statement could be partly true. but it requires a lot of explaining. first, as we m

and read it several times. >> about the crew, i just want to make a point. these are not governed by u.s. labor laws, you talk about the extra hours and the like, it's up to carnival and maritime law to decide what kind of compensation the crew gets for the time and energy and extra time, because they are not governed by u.s. labor law. >> there is a lot of murky law here, that the case? >> to use a maritime expression, yes. some murky law with regard to their compensation. you know, this is not -- we're not talking about millions of dollars. and in the case of somebody who was just in convenienced, and i'm not trying to downplay the conditions on board by any means, because i think they were horrible, horrendous, but, you know, in those circumstances, you know, you've got to -- you got to consider, well, is it worth bringing a lawsuit against carnival in federal court in miami, florida, for that level of damages? >> all right. thank you very much. great to see you. a lot of legal questions. >> christine. >>> a city mayor losing nearly a billion dollars -- yes, a difficult billion dollar
